The motor should be OK, you don't need to buy a new one, you could use to practice and even race with it.

Regarding the grease in the differential (rear) it is used too make the car more docile.

If you plan to race, it maybe advisable to get an starter box and modify the motor to use a bump start, basically what you need is a different backplate and a larger flywheel. This is required because in the middle of a race if the engine flames out, you or your pit man will go crazy trying to start the engine again.

Hope this info is useful to you.

it is helpful stuff and i apreciate it all. reguarding the rear and front gears.... what would be recommended in the front and in the rear? should i run grease in rear or oil. i guess in just looking for the best performance out of the truck so im not buying new gears after every practice or in the first race the rear end goes out.
